Dr. Seuss Awards

leave a comment »

Ok, so a quick unrelated post about my new obsession – Dr Seuss.

dr-seuss-awardsThroughout his life Dr. Seuss was known for writing rhyming children’s books with good messages.  While he received recognition for his amazing books from his numerous fans, he never received the preeminent award for children’s book authors such as the Caldecott Award and the Newberry Medal.
Surprisingly enough, Dr. Seuss won two Academy Awards in his lifetime.   One was for writing a documentary about Japanese culture during World War II, the other was for an animated short film based on story Gerald McBoing Boing.  Seuss also won several Emmy awards for the seven television specials he wrote from 1971 to 1982, such as CBS: The Cat in the Hat, The Lorax, and Dr. Seuss on the Loose.
Since his death the Association for Library Service to children has created a Theodore Seuss Geisel or Dr. Seuss Award.  The award is given to the most distinguished American book for beginning readers.  It was established in 2004 and first given out in 2006. Past winners include There is a Bird on Your Head by Mo Willems and Zelda and Ivy: The Runaways by Laura McGee Kvasnosky.
